This converted former farm building is within view of Dartmoor National Park’s most famed beauty spot and well loved ancient tor, Haytor Rock, and now provides three fantastic holiday properties. They have been sympathetically converted and beautifully styled and furnished with a blend of warming moorland colours and cosy soft-furnishings which are complemented with modern luxury amenities.
Light, bright and stylish with versatile accommodation, The Wool Store is an end of row barn which boasts views over open moorland behind the property as well as garden and meadow views to the front. Tastefully furnished and comfortably appointed, it is perfect for couples as a romantic bolthole as well as for friends holidaying together.
Rural, yet not isolated, the peaceful location will dazzle the senses for those seeking outdoor pursuits as well as those wanting a restful holiday at any time of year. Each of the properties boasts stunning views across open wild sweeping moorland as well as across rolling Devon countryside towards the sparkle of the South Devon coastline. Dartmoor ponies are likely to nuzzle at the property’s gate. Whether on foot or on bike, there are endless routes straight from the front doors, and the many mysterious Dartmoor tales will captivate the imaginations of all ages. The historic quarries at Haytor are just a short walk away, from where you can follow the Haytor Granite Tramway, tracing the route to the coast uden when granite was exported during the late 18th Century. For cyclists, Haytor is a regular Tour of Britain stage. For more restful pursuits there is a fabulous cafe bar offering delicious local goodies, a wonderful Dartmoor Inn and restaurant, and a National Park Visitor Centre that will equip guests with plentiful local information within a short stroll of the barns. Just slightly further afield, within a mile or so, there is a well stocked farm shop as well as a selection of picturesque village inns and tearooms; and just beyond that a wider selection of amenities are found within Bovey Tracey. Beyond Dartmoor, the shops, theatres, and cinemas of Exeter are not far away. Day trips to beaches in Teignmouth or South Hams offer a great alternative for a fun day-out.
The front door opens into light and bright dining kitchen. Plentiful work surface space and modern specification appliances will delight the keen chef. The kitchen is equipped with an induction hob, built-in oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge with freezer compartment (no washing machine or tumble dryer). An oak dining table for six is positioned beside large windows overlooking the garden. The loungefeatures a TV and DVD as well as a large corner sofa which can be used an occasional bed for two extra guests. Cloakroom with WC and washbasin. To the first floor, a light spacious landing leads to bedroom 1 which overlooks the garden and meadow and has a 5ft king bed and TV. Bedroom 2 boasts moorland views and is also furnished with a 5ft king bed, TV and DVD player. Both bedrooms have open hanging hooks and chests of drawers. The bathroom has a bath with shower over, wash basin and WC.

Our 8th visit, so that speaks for itself that we love Haytor Barns. Had some drama this time when the water supply was cut off twice but the very friendly owner explained the situation and the supply was restored within a couple of hours. As mentioned in our comments for Haytor View, perhaps a quick paint job would be good to keep the barns looking fresh. We will return!
Comfortable, cosy well equipped cottage with beautiful surroundings and plenty of walks from the door
Wonderful stay in a very well appointed holiday cottage. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation for the little extras ( cake, milk, tea, coffee, olive oil and even things like foil and clingfilm). The cottage was furnished to a very high standard and was in a perfect location. Would love to come and stay again and we were both sad to leave.
We had a wonderful stay once again at the Wool Store and our children didn’t want to go home. It is such a beautiful spot with so many places to visit. We realise that the property is dog friendly and love dogs ourselves, however, the floors really need washing before the next guests arrive. The rest of the property was very clean. Last year when we arrived there was a little welcome pack of cake and fresh milk in the fridge. We found this a lovely touch and think you should consider reinstating it.
We had a lovely holiday here thank you, great location, great views, excellently equipped, plenty of space-would highly recommend. Thank you.
We really had a great time here, a lovely little cottage in a beautiful, if remote, location. Would recommend as a base for the local area, not too far to get to north, south or west Devon.
We loved our stay here and found the Wool store a perfect barn for a weeks stay on Dartmoor. Would love to return.
This was our 5th stay at the Wool Store so it goes without saying that we love this property. The only criticism we have is that dogs are now allowed in the Wool Store. My husband's asthma is badly affected by pet hair and we would not normally ever stay in a property that allowed pets. Having said this, we found no trace of pets on the premises other than a feint doggy smell on the sofa. It will not stop us returning and we are already booked for Easter.
This property was areal find. A fantastic location, and a very pleasant accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are planning to return next year.
Fantastic location right on the doorstep of Haytor. Loved it.
We thought the TV, wi-fi and the shower were particularly good. We have been to cottages over the years where the TV signal and wi-fi were slow so this made a nice change.
Lovely location. Shame it's so close to the road though only an issue for 1 bedroom and if you're not used to the noise of cars at night. Still slept well. The house was very well equipped and fitted out. Would like to return.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful property in its fabulous location and we hope to book again.
We will definitely return to the Wool Store next year as the accommodation, facilities and location are excellent. My only problem is we didn't stay longer.
The cottage was really well equipped, ideally located and we would use again, thank you.
A very pleasant property in a wonderful under rated area.
